Swansea City vs Arsenal Preview

Sunday’s early afternoon kick off sees Swansea City host Arsenal at the Liberty Stadium.

The two sides met just over a month ago in the Premier League when a late double from top scorer Michu handed Michael Laudrop’s men the three points.

The Welsh side go in to the game on the back of a four game unbeaten run, and currently sit in ninth place in the division, just five points behind their North London opponents.

The home side have no fresh injury worries, with defender Neil Taylor their only absentee.

Michu is 8.0 (7/1) with Paddy Power to add to his tally of 14 with the first goal of the game, while Danny Graham, who has two goals in his last two games is a 9.0 (8/1) shot with the same firm.

Bet 365 offer the best odds of 3.75 (5/2) for the home win, while Arsenal are widely available at 2.15 (23/20). The draw is on offer at a best price of 3.6 (13/5).

Only Manchester United have lifted the FA Cup on more occasions than Arsenal, who continue their search for a first piece of silverware in eight seasons.

The Gunners are unbeaten in their last five league games, though they only managed a 1-1 draw last time out at Southampton on New Year’s Day.

Abou Diaby and Andre Santos have returned to training, but are unlikely to feature as they improve their fitness.
Theo Walcott is on fourteen for the season, and is favourite to open the scoring at 6.0 (5/1) with a variety of bookmakers.
